With everything going on right now, more companies are shutting their doors to take part in “flattening the curve.” It’s heartwarming to see businesses and organizations take action in keeping everyone safe.

Among one of the companies to temporarily close its doors is Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada. The aquarium shut down operations on March 16, 2020 at 6pm. On their website, they welcome ticket holders to send emails for any “questions or concerns regarding ticket extensions, refunds and/or general inquiries.”
With many of us staying home, we wonder what we can do with all this spare “indoor time.” Luckily, the Toronto Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada has a treat for us. They set up a shark cam so we can “swim” alongside our favourite underwater creatures.
The Shark Cam streams live on their official website. It’s quite a sight to see! It’s like a visit to the aquarium without having to leave the comfort of your home. While it’s called the “Shark Cam,” you can still spot all sorts of fish and other underwater species. However, it’s tons of fun to spot the sharks! How many will you see in one sitting?
Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada is best known for its glass viewing tunnel, where you can walk through to discover tons of underwater creatures. Their new shark cam, however, takes you right into the tank - so you can feel like you’re in there with them!
